Hey babes! Hope you have been having a wonderful end to your summer! With summer coming to close, retailers are already starting to focus on the Holiday seasons. Are you’re like me whenever asked “What do you want for Christmas?” you always tell the person they don’t have to get you anything….even though you know they will? Instead of putting the gift giver under stress trying to find something for you, or having to force a smile when you get something that you in no way shape or form inclined you wanted just skip the humble bs and come prepared! That is why I have put together my top 10 list of high end and affordable beauty items.
Over the last few months to a year I have come across a couple different high-end items that I really want to try out. The first is this mirror by HiMirror. this just isn’t your every day run of the mill makeup mirror. Oh no! This baby is high tech! HiMirror has a couple different options but the mini is the one I want. This guy will scan and take photos of your face and track your skin progress. This way you will know if those expensive face creams are actually doing anything or not. The other thing that I love about this item is that it comes equipped with all of the top social media apps. Now I can watch a my fave YouTube makeup gurus while I am following along!
Another gadget I am wanting to try out is the Tyme Iron. This little guy gives you everything from straight locks to loose beach waves to tight curls and everything in between. I’ve heard some reviews about how it was a little tricky to get the hang of at first, but now it takes no time for the preferred style. The iron alone retails for $190, but if you’re feeling extra…you know I’m ALWAYS feeling extra, the Bombshell sells for $446 and includes the iron, blow dryer, shampoo and conditioner, thermal protectant, repair and shine, 2 brushes and 2 storage bags.
The last high-end gadget I am wanting is the Lilumia make up brush cleaner. Being the makeup lover I am I have more brushes than I need. The reason I have so many….I. HATE. CLEANING. THEM. It’s just soooooooo time consuming. I’m standing at the bathroom sink FOREVER, then my back starts hurting and I just give up. With this handy dandy helper my brushes will stay nice and clean. Now it isn’t recommended for all brushes like double sided ones and 3D ones, but for most of my brushes I can pop them in the machine and be on my way!
There are a couple makeup items that have made it on my list that are more on the high-end side. The first being this delux set of Sigma brushes. I have a couple Sigma brushes and they have become my go-to every day shadow brushes. This 29 pieces set would make a lovely addition to my collection. I mean, now that I have Lilumia to clean them all, we’re good!
Another high-end makeup item I would love to own is one of the Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks. Now if you’re just looking at the price $38 seems pretty affordable, but we are talking about a lipstick people! One single lipstick retails for $38 which is the same price as a full eye shadow palette in some brands. The ide of being able to own something with YSL logo on it, even if it is a lipstick, is pretty awesome in my book.
Everyone has there opinion of what is considered affordable. I have included 5 makeup/beauty items that are affordable to me. If you didn’t notice, I have an addiction when it comes to eye shadow palettes. These 3 are on the top of my list. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette is the newest released palette and I am in love with all of those purple colors! Then we have the Violete Voss Flamingo palette and the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered. The Huda Beauty palette is the most expensive at $65 and the others are both under $50.
The other 2 affordable beauty items I want to try are the ColourPop cream lipsticks and the House Of Lashes false lashes. Ok, so I have tried HOL before but I currently don’t have any in my collection. This particular pair is called Noir Fairy and they are gorgeous! A single pack of lashes goes for $12 and as long as you take care of your lashes, you will get multiple uses out of them.
The last affordable beauty item that has made it onto the list is a ColourPop cream lipstick. I have a few of their eye shadow palettes and have been really pleased with the product. Plus with so many different shades and at $7 each, how could you not want one!?
So there you have it babes! My top beauty must haves. Are any of these items on your wishlist?
